Despite the poor state of the economy, 2009 could prove to be an excellent year to buy a home. Home prices are at their lowest levels in the DC area since 2004, both the Obama administration and the DC government are offering attractive incentives for first-time home buyers, and interest rates are at historic lows. As many of our readers are prospective home buyers, UrbanTurf is entertaining the idea of hosting a happy hour where ideas can be shared about what neighborhoods, buildings, and price points people are looking in. We would also have a few real estate and mortgage professionals on hand to answer any questions that you may have. If this is an event that you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
